Handbags and Gladrags
by Stereophonics



Ever seen a blind man cross the road
Trying to make the other side
Ever seen a young girl growing old
Trying to make herself a bride

So what becomes of you my love
When they have finally stripped you of
The handbags and the gladrags
That your poor old Grandad
Had to sweat to buy you

Once I was a young man
And all I thought I had to do was smile
You are still a young girl
And you bought everything in style

So once you think you're in you're out
'cause you don't mean a single thing without
The handbags and the gladrags
That your poor old Grandad
Had to sweat to buy you

Sing a song of six-pence for your sake
And drink a bottle full of rye
Four and twenty blackbirds in a cake
And bake them all in a pie

They told me you missed school today
So what I suggest you just throw them all away
The handbags and the gladrags
That your poor old Granddad
Had to sweat to buy you

They told me you missed school today
So I suggest you just throw them all away
The handbags and the gladrags
That your poor old Granddad
Had to sweat to buy you
